This is great news, I have been waiting eagerly for tidier since I read about it
the first time.

A quick test have found two small issues.

1, If tider does not make any transformations it does not tell you that,
    it just brings You to the "here is your transformed file" page.
    So it took me some time to figure out if it was working or not.
    It would be nice with a message that says "no transformations
    performed" or something like that.

2, If I try to analyze a file that is not erlang code, it crashes, and gives a
    yaws crash page. the same happens if I dont specify a file and just press
    the "upload code and start refactoring" button.
